Rubber Stops

Use our CLEAR Round Self Adhesive Rubber Stops on your Furniture Protector for a more secure finish or if you are concerned about possible slippage. Our packs contain 20 Rubber Stops.

The Rubber Stops are approximately 11mm x 2mm in size and made of clear polyurethane coated with a powerful pressure sensitive adhesive to the back.
In practice we have found that using a pad approximately every 300mm to 500mm is extremely effective in stopping the furniture protector from moving about when in use.

Coloured Acrylic Perspex® Cut To Size

The Plastic People's vibrant, solid cut to size coloured acrylic and see-through translucent acrylic sheets are superb quality and excellent value.

The coloured acrylic we supply is from the Perspex® brand – however our white, black and opal acrylics are supplied from other brands.

We’re on hand to cut your order to the bespoke size or shape you need to make your project a success.  Simply enter your measurements above – including the thickness, width, length and chosen colour.

Where Can Coloured Acrylic Be Used?

Coloured acrylic is suitable for a wide range of uses.

This includes glazing, sculptures, furniture, splashbacks – and even works for subtle outdoor garden and patio decoration.

We also supply opal acrylic 050 which has a light transmission of 37%.

If you require a light transmission of 70%, please specify opal acrylic 030 in the Order Notes box you’ll see at the checkout. This type of acrylic is mainly used for creating light boxes and illuminated signage.

With coloured Perspex® sheets cut to size, you can tailor your order to suit whatever bespoke requirements you might have in mind.

You can also purchase coloured acrylic sheeting in 14 different colours and 2 different sizes if you prefer.

Ordering Coloured Acrylic Cut to Size

Ordering coloured acrylic sheets cut to size is simple with The Plastic People.

In order to get a cut to size quote, you’ll need to let us know some specific details about your potential order.

First and foremost, there are 18 different colours to choose from – so you’ll need to choose a coloured acrylic that suits your personal requirements.

Before you measure up to find out exactly how much you need, just know that we work in centimetres, millimetres and inches. So, whatever unit you’re most comfortable with is fine. All you need to do is enter your chosen width, length and thickness.

There is a maximum width and length, however. You’ll see this clearly displayed on the quote calculator for reference.

You can also add some optional extras to your order if required.

For instance, we can drill holes into cut to size coloured acrylic once you specify how many you need. You can let us know the specific positioning of the holes in the comments box at the online checkout – or alternatively, you can upload a drawing (files only a maximum of 5MB) if you feel that best articulates your requirements. Just bear in mind that holes can be drilled no further than 15mm from the edge of the plastic.

If you want holes drilled, then you’re likely to need screws, screw covers or rubber stops to help fix the plastic in place. You can also add these to your order or even your initial quote just to get an idea of total costings.

Ordering Coloured Acrylic Cut to Shape

As well as choosing from 18 different colours, you can also select six different shapes for your order to be cut into.
This includes:
  • T-Shape
  • L-Shape
  • Triangle
  • Semi-Circle
  • Circle
  • Oval

Again, when it comes to coloured Perspex®  cut to shape – you’ll need to let us know the specific dimensions you require in millimetres, centimetres or inches.

This includes the thickness, width and length – however, for the more circular shapes, you’ll need to have a diameter measurement in mind before you place your order.

We can also send over a quote for a different cut to bespoke shape order provided you email a drawing across to us.

The same optional extras can also be added to coloured Perspex cut to shape order.

How to Clean Coloured Acrylic

Use warm water with a small amount of mild detergent and a soft cotton cloth to clean acrylic.
Alternatively we're very impressed with the results from acrylic cleaner VuPlex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in seconds. Keep your acrylic looking like brand new by adding VuPlex acrylic cleaner to your order today.

Delivery Options

We recommend that you purchase a sample to check colour before placing larger orders – just to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting.

Translucent acrylic allows a transmission of a minimal amount of light. Whilst you cannot see through the translucent acrylic, an object behind it would show a shadow. Solid acrylic colours on the other hand, are not see-through – so it’s worth bearing this in mind before you place an order.

Unless stated otherwise – orders are processed through our standard delivery service. Cut to size acrylic orders are typically delivered within 3 working days.

Named day delivery enables you to select a day of your choosing when you feel it would be most appropriate to receive your order. Or, you can pay for next day delivery to get your order as soon as possible.

It’s wise to have a read through our delivery service information before placing your cut to size or cut to shape order for coloured acrylic with The Plastic People today.

Can acrylic be used behind a hob ?

Acrylic can be used for kitchen splashbacks but the following distances should be kept between the outer edge of your hob and the acrylic: at least 60mm for ceramic hobs and at least 200mm for gas hobs. Acrylic is not suitable for use behind an Aga or similar range cooker.
See our splashback pages for further details.

Can acrylic be used in bathrooms ?
Acrylic can be used for bathroom splashbacks, shower splashbacks and bath panels. 

Acrylic can be delivered at a maximum size of 3m x 2m meaning it is possible to cover a large area without the need for any seams (this means no more grouting !). 

Because acrylic is so light, lfting acrylic and fixing it to walls is a fairly straightforward DIY task.  See our acrylic splashbacks for further details.
How can I clean acrylic ?
We suggest simply use warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.   Any chemical cleaner should be avoided as it is likely to damage the acrylic.  If you would like to use a cleaning product we suggest our specialist acrylic cleaner and polish Vuplex.
How can I cut acrylic sheets
You can cut acrylic at home yourself - learn how to do it here.

Is acrylic heat resistant ?

Acrylic is heat resistant up to 70 degrees.


Is acrylic suitable for outdoor use ?

Yes, acrylic can be used outside.
